Empowering Our Nation's Warriors

February 19, 2014

President George W. Bush addressed the Summit to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing post 9-11 veterans, and how the Bush Institute will work with leaders across all sectors to unite the efforts of communities, non-profits, businesses, academics, and individuals to create a coalition of effective and efficient resources for veterans and their families. 

Dr. Jill Biden, Second Lady of the United States and co-founder of Joining Forces, and retired Marine General Pete Pace, 16th Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, will participate in a conversation on the unique needs of service members, veterans, and military families, as well as how all Americans can support our service members as they transition back into civilian life.
